Saints’ Fair

For whatever reasons, I can’t remember Bishops’ throwing fairs. Either my memory is awful or I never went to any (probably the former).

Saints had a fair on Saturday and I ended up checking it out for a bit. The same games Ogle Church usually has at their fairs but far more carefully dressed teenagers sizing each other up. Even if we had fairs at Bishops’, I’m pretty sure I would never have gone as well dressed as the teens of today. I had a poor grasp on the concept of popular style (still do) and was still taking fashion advice from my aunts (still do). Since I look anywhere between 18 and 19, I found myself being evaluated and was mildly relieved when I was told by a 16 year old that my ankle boots were awesome. I myself was feeling a little ridiculous for wearing them as it had stopped raining by the time I got there and it was, as usual, hot. But weather is obviously not something one considers when thinking about style – judging by the number of high top lace up cotton sneakerboots (name?) I saw on the females.

I lost at a game of Spin the Wheel (which, I have decided, is impossible to win) and was amused at the ‘Shy Tins’ sign in another corner (shy = throw/pelt). Lots of tempting food stands. Had a dinner engagement so couldn’t stay although I heard things would get started only later in the evening (don’t they always?) but not a bad afternoon.
